I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

The forum is the place to get answers.

But you need to help the forum by giving us more information about your RV. IE: Brand, Model, year, etc.

Thanks,

As was said, it's more helpful if you posted make and model of radio. Or year, make and model of RV.
Just saying back bunkhouse isn't enough information.
Also, are you plugged into shore power or just on battery power?

Regardless of what make model, etc., your blown radio fuse is either caused by an overload on that circuit or a direct short. If its an overload which is caused by too much amperage, the fuse link will appear broken but if from a short circuit it will usually appear melted. Hope that helps.

Here is a helpful link

From the OP’s earlier deleted post:
“I need help we bought a used coachmen freedom express and my radio fuse keeps blowing as soon as put a new fuse in it blows again. What do I do? I know nothing about electrical stuff but I am willing to learn. Thanks”

Does it blow whether the radio is on or off?

Does it blow as soon as you insert it or does it take it a couple seconds?

if you put in a fuse and it blows right away, as you said, then you have a dead short. May have to pull the radio out and check its connections and wires to see if anything is shorting out. or the connections are not correct?

I'd pull the radio out and see if any other items are connected to the power feed to it. Sometimes the radio wire is used for other accessories using one of those "Siamese" wire connectors.

If a fuse continuously blows, find the cause. DO NOT just insert a larger fuse. Doing so will eventually lead to a "Smoke Event".
